    • QUOTES (7)

      • Dr. Maza: Lenin used to like Beethoven. He said he couldn't listen to music too often. It made him want to stroke people's heads, instead of hitting them without mercy.
        McGill: Instead of hitting them?
        Dr. Maza: Yes, Mr. McGill. Hitting them on their silly heads.

      • Dr. Maza: Music is no answer to dirt and filth, and the leprous beggar whining for basheesh.

      • Yuseef: Haidar is a realist. You are an idealist. I have thought a long time about this and I have made my decision. I can follow you no longer. I'm sorry for this thing, but I too have become a realist.
        Dr. Maza: Is this the new name for a Judas? How many pieces of silver, Yuseef?
        Yuseef: Why do you use Christian mythology, Doctor? We are Arabs.

      • Haidar: And where are our political ideals now? You sneer at Yuseef's self-interest.
        Dr. Maza: Self-interest is not the same thing as treachery.

      • McGill: Well, all your clients cause this much trouble?
        Toni: No. Do yours?
        McGill: Yeah, usually.

      • McGill: Eh, you guys are pretty good hiding behind women, aren't you?
        Haidar: I think your Western ideas of emancipation give a false value to a woman's life. You cannot blame me for exploiting it.

      • McGill: Toni?
        Toni: Yes?
        McGill: What you doing for breakfast?
        Toni: Breakfast? Nothing. Why?
        McGill: Beautiful, let's do nothing together, okay? I'll see you then.
